|< report >Seeing as the trial version's been out since July, the game is coming out this later this week and the first game was strangely popular here I figured I would get the ball rolling and see what you guys think of Tomefure 2. How does this compare with the first game? I checked the official website and under the story tab the premise is... the same as the first game. The guy's house looks much bigger than before though. Nipples are similar to before as well, and not my cup of tea. Overall I was hoping there'd be a few differences from last time, but I'm just not seeing it.|
Are the H scenes the same as before where they just talk about sexual slavery and pregnancy, with very few actual kinks involved?
Are the H scenes all crammed in the last few hours of the game? Edit: I understand the first game's intentions of being a cocktease, just that it doesn't work for me since I would often just turn off the game, go fap at the boorus or something then come back lol.
Do you feel like the script is easier to read than the first game? I remember it being hard at the time, and coupled with Japanese comedy not always being compatible with foreign senses of humor I was surprised by how many reviews and discussions the first game ended up having.
If these things haven't changed compared to the first game then honestly I'm probably not going to read this. I know some people liked Tomefure more than I did, and the ladies are still hard to ignore but really I just can't see myself reading the same thing again. Still I'm looking to see if there's anything special this time around.Last modified on 2021-09-21 at 07:40

|< report >Right. Well, right now only the trial is out, and I didn't read the H-scene part (to keep it for the full game), so I can't talk about the H-scenes yet. though it's clear impregnation will be the main theme simply because that's the writer's shtick. First of all, my impression of the trial is that they clearly chose the "don't fix what ain't broken" approach. When they announced the delay back in March, they made a survey in which they asked for thoughts on the first game, likes/dislikes, and hopes for the 2nd one. You know that I really liked the first one, and I filled out the survey accordingly. |
Differences from the first game that I've noticed is that the MC doesn't appear to be a martial arts god, so that whole subplot will be replaced with something else. Second, the MC and the girls have been interacting with each other online for several weeks before the game even starts. This removes the initial awkward getting to know each other part (shame). Third, it appears to rely a bit less on referential humor, which I very much appreciate. I laughed quite often during the trial - I think the most since HaremKingdom, and it's still just the trial. I didn't have any problems with the script difficulty either, but I don't even remember if I had any issues with the first one.
But what remains the same is that the game is indeed about slow progress towards a harem. It's not a nukige, it's not a route eroge. As the main goal of the MC is not a sexual relationship but healing his loneliness with a risk-free (as in no risk of emotional scars) relationship of tomefure, it is a reasonable assumption that H-scenes will again only appear in the last 1/3 - 1/4 of the game, with the middle being filled out with hardcore cockteasing and buildup to "breaking the dam". But again, this is just an educated guess based on the prologue (first 4-5hrs). So far, it appears to be a game made for the fans of the first one, which is completely understandable considering the big gap in popularity between Tomefure and their second game Kamishippo.
EDIT: One more thing, I was not really into the heroines when I first saw the announcement, and I still think the design is worse than the first one's, but they grew on me a bit during the trial, and excitement for the main game remains high.Last modified on 2021-09-21 at 10:33

|< report >So you think the comedy's better? I might one day read it after all if that's the case, although it's still a low priority for me. I personally liked the reference humor in the first game but less because I found it funny and more because I liked seeing what I could understand or not. Basically like smiling at a joke instead of laughing at it, not the best way to respond to comedy. So it's nice they cut down on that a bit.|

Just started playing (only a couple of hours into the game), the humor is somewhat similar to the previous one, personally I liked it a lot, so at least from my perspective, I guess they didn't break what was working (just like #2 said). There were a few anime references flying around until the first meeting IRL (Kaguya-sama wa kokurasetai, One Piece, Gotoubun no hanayome, among those) but it's not like you had to know those shows to enjoy the scene(s) in which they mentonied, IMO.
As for the language, my impression is that, just like with the first game, the writing is really similar and mostly casual/colloquial; there's also quite a lot of slang, still, you should be fine most of the time if you're not paranoid about learning every new word you encounter, but are OK with just following the story and deducing the general meaning of a given from the context on the spot...
To give you a concrete example of what I mean, a line by the narrator on how people deceive each other when it comes to online dating (how they make themselves look better than they actually do) -> 写真と全然違う（パネマジ半端ない）-> this パネマジ is probably something you would not encounter in any eroge until now, since apparently it's a word used in a bordello context lol... link - but you don't need to know as much in order to understand that the person quoted by the narrator implied that there's surely some kind of Photoshop magic involvedLast modified on 2021-09-27 at 09:15

|< report >I was interested in reading this one after reading the first one but the heroines just don't look good. Boobs are just too big and makes me hate their designs. First one was just at the tolerable level for me.|

|< report >Well, I personally liked the bigger tits, YMMV I guess.|
Almost finished the game, will be posting a review soon, but it turns out the game took a turn to another direction, and it's not that big of a tease - it became more of a nukige instead (I reached the first scene in some 20 hours playing on auto play while looking up words every now and then)Last modified on 2021-10-07 at 13:13
